This is an entertaining and funny, occasionally hilarious, feel-good romantic comedy. The premise is reminiscent of Liar Liar, but here it is more realistic and comes with a meaningful message. Jim Carrey’s performance as Carl Allen is relatively balanced and free from his characteristic antics, and I actually identified to some degree with the character he plays; Zooey Deschanel is very likeable as Allison, Carl’s love interest; Rhys Darby is noteworthy in a supporting role as Norman, Carl’s nerdy boss. There are a number of more or less obvious product placements in the movie; I could not help but notice that Carl’s cell phone is the same model as mine: Nokia 6300.
